10-10-10: Let Go of the Illusion

10-10-10: Let Go of the Illusion

A clear message has been coming through in the days leading up to 10-10-10: Let go of the Illusion. Let go of the Illusion that anything other than Love is real. Let go of believing that your life or path has to have any suffering or struggle in it anymore. Paradise is your real reality. Open your eyes. You don’t have to get there. You are there.

Imagine you are in a garden full of overgrown bushes and grass. The garden has been good to you and has provided you with so much. Yet there is a feeling that the garden has reached its use by date, that you have outgrown this garden and it is time to move on. The garden is enclosed by a wall, and in the wall is a huge door. On the other side of the wall is a beautiful, lush tropical paradise. Your nose is pressed up against this door and you know it is time to go through it but it feels like the door isn’t budging. How to go through?

Next allow yourself a preview of the paradise garden. It is so colourful, with a beautiful blue lake surrounded by tropical flowers of the brightest colours. Birds and butterflies are fluttering around. Music is in the air. There is a feeling of happiness, joy, peace and tranquillity. Your favourite people are all around you, and life feels good.

The paradise garden feels very familiar to you, and you suddenly remember the old garden. You look back to take a glance at the door and the wall and’s not there! The paradise garden is all you can see as far as you can see, it’s all around you. Where did the old garden go? You have a sudden, strange realisation. It has disappeared because it was never real. It was an illusion of your creation. It served a purpose. It served a very important purpose. You wouldn’t be the soul that you are today without it. However the need for it is no longer there. The moment you remember that paradise is your true reality, the illusion that is the old reality is free to dissolve.

Many of us are at this point right now, with our noses pressed up against the door of the old garden. We know that the garden has served its purpose. We know that it no longer feels comfortable, and we know it is time to move full-time into the paradise garden. Yet we aren’t quite sure how to get through the door. Sure we spend time in the paradise garden, but as long as this wall and door exists we tend to fluctuate from one garden to the other. The more time we spend in the paradise garden, the harder it is to be in the density of the old garden, and so here we are at somewhat of a boiling point – we find it hard to be in the old garden but we don’t quite know how to crash down the door and the wall so that we can be free to be in the paradise garden all the time.

Here’s the clue. The door doesn’t exist. The wall doesn’t exist. The old garden doesn’t exist. It only exists in your mind. It is only real because you believed it to be real. The energies of 10-10-10 are powerfully reminding us of this: the illusion is only real to the degree we believe it to be real. As soon as we click into the remembering that paradise is the real ‘real’, we can let everything else go.

The old garden represents our belief in lack, struggle and suffering. The old garden is where we went through a lot of experiences for the purpose of growth and evolution. We will all continue to grow and evolve, however the time for that particular method of growth and evolution is over. O-V-E-R. Over. We are waking up to our true natures where fear, doubt and worry do not exist. DO NOT EXIST. We are waking up to our true reality where love is the only thing that is real.

Our lower human emotions of jealousy, revenge and judgement have served our growth journey well, but they do not belong in our paradise garden. Our belief that we are separate from each other and from Source Energy served us, but it was a myth. We are all connected, all the time. Our belief that we have to have problems and issues was a convenient story, that served a purpose. But it was just that, a story. Our belief that we don’t have the solutions to creating a peaceful, harmonious, sustainable humanity is soon going to be unbelievable history. Our adamant insistence that a world where everyone receives all they need and spends their days doing what they love is not possible is going to be laughed at by future generations. Our generally held consensus that we are the only living beings in the universe will be as if it had existed in a dream, from which we will soon wake up. It is time to say goodbye to our self-created prison, where over and over again we played the part of either prisoner or jailor, servant or master, victim or perpetrator.

There are those who are addicted to the illusion and will find it hard to let go, but as more and more people ‘unplug’ it will be harder to spend time there simply because there will be less energy supporting it.

What keeps us plugged into the illusion? It is our mind. It would be easy to assume it is fear, but fear cannot take hold of anything without the mind’s willingness to align with it and convince us via thoughts and beliefs that it has any power over us. Our mind can act as our greatest ally and our weakest link. Our mind is SO strong and with its thoughts and beliefs it can literally create anything....and resist everything.

During this powerful time of 10-10-10 ask yourself: Which reality is your mind aligned to? Is it aligned with the illusion or with the paradise reality? Which reality does your mind more strongly believe in and favour? You will know via the thoughts and beliefs it sends you – and you will know the kind of thoughts and beliefs you are being sent by becoming aware of the way you feel most of the time. Do you feel good or bad? Anxious or excited? Frustrated or free?

You HAVE to regain control of your mind if you are to make the quantum leap into the paradise reality. You may believe with all your heart and soul that the paradise reality is how life ideally is. You may believe with all your heart and soul that peace, happiness, love, joy, limitless abundance, creativity and great health is your true nature. Yet if your mind is strongly aligned with the illusion you will find it hard to jump into, or maintain, the paradise reality as your day to day experience.

We have spent lifetimes having to have our minds aligned with the illusion. It was part of the game to forget our true nature and reality. So of course, unplugging from the illusion and re-aligning with our true nature and reality was never going to be an easy thing. Getting our mind to align with our true nature and reality after lifetimes of asking it to do the total opposite was always going to be a one step forward, two steps backward process. Yet it has to be done and now is the time.

It is time to re-align your mind with Source Energy. It is time to re-align your mind with your authentic self and true nature. It is time to re-align your mind with who you really are. It is time to remember the greater reality, and it is time to re-align your mind with all that the greater reality now wishes you to know and to receive.

How do you do this?

- You can affirm all the above daily and as you say it, feel it: I now align my mind with my true nature, with Source Energy, with my best possible self and reality.

- Consciously choose thoughts that feel good to you, thoughts that represent your paradise reality: I am in perfect health, I have total financial freedom, I am full of love and joy. As you say these things, feel them and see yourself in a scene that matches what you’re saying. This will help you to align your mind with the vibration of your paradise reality, which you have to do if you want to live there.

- Become aware of thoughts that are aligned with the illusion: I can’t, it’s not possible and thoughts based on a lack mentality. Notice them, and just as you would change a music track you didn’t like, so too flick the switch immediately. Get in a habit of either switching onto a positive thought stream, or feeling something good, or imagining something positive. I am not talking here about repressing your genuine feelings and covering them with a fake happy face. I am talking about catching draining, restrictive, limit and fear-oriented thoughts that are literally toxic to you that are predominantly a result of old habits, rather than serving any constructive purpose in your life.

Let your path be easy. Let yourself be happy. We did not come here to continue the cycle of karma and struggle. The time for that is over. It is time to wake up. It is time to enter a new cycle, and a new reality. Allow yourself to believe this is happening, and ask your mind to help you adjust your track. Destination: Home.

    Thanks for the reminder. I CHOOSE PARADISE!

  2. Dana, thank you for this beautiful, clear beautifully written and so inspiring! Just what I needed to hear today :)
    Much love and appreciation...

  3. Well I don't know an can't speak for anyone else, I just don't think I would like paradise much. It kinda reminds me of the Jahova Wittness's an that some sort of world without anything they decide is bad to not exsist! We should all be very thankfull for any bad or what we feel is undesirable because without it we would not have anything at all. How could there be hero's like Dana if there was no villions.

  4. Thanks Harmonygate and Angela:)

    Thank you too Monday....hopefully you read through to the end of the monthly vision where I wrote this isn't about repressing is about letting go of toxic thoughts that are really more old habit than truth - two totally different things. As for heroes and villians, if everyone remembered who they really are, remembered their authentic truth and power (which is I feel where everyone is heading), there would be no need for either. You are your own hero, all anyone else can do is shine a light so that you can see/remember your own self more clearly.

  5. I understand what you're saying, but I can't use affirmations that my body and mind do not believe, they won't work. As much as I want to (and still do at times) I can't say "I have unlimited financial abundance" when I'm about to be evicted because I can't pay my rent. My body and mind know that statement isn't true. I have to use affirmations (with eft) that help me move forward, that have some truth in them. Intellectually I know there is unlimited abundance all around me, but I still have to use statements that work for me.

  6. Anarii1 you make a good point. I know it's hard to say an affirmation like that when you're in that kind of situation...however I have found that in moments when I've been in dire financial strife and needed abundance asap (imagine being in the middle of another country with $0 in the bank!) it is by over-riding the mind with your SOUL BELIEF and SOUL KNOWING that abundance is there for you, that I've been able to turn situations around literally overnight. So I'm not one of those people who talk about 'tune in to source energy and all will be well' meanwhile have never actually had to deal with what no money in the bank actually feels like, I know what it feels like. You have to find a way to over-ride that feeling of terror. I know that the mind doesn't believe in affirmations that aren't from its logic perspective 'true', but it is a matter of getting to the point where you have to say, "Mind, you don't get to make the decision here! You don't get to determine what does and doesn't happen in my life based on what you believe. I need to determine what does and doesn't happen in my life based on what my Soul believes!'

    So while the particular affirmation you mention may not work for you, it is extremely helpful to find words (and feelings) and methods that DO work for you. I highly recommend reading anything by Florence Scovel Shinn to help you through this. Some of her writings are free online, google her name to find them.
